Default steering slip 98 tahoe

For those of us who have been experiencing the steering slip, we seem to understand that it is due to an EVO or steering position sensor. Many of us think that it is the same thing. After talking to a GM technician, they are not the same thing. The EVO is located on the power steering pump in the engine compartment and the Steering Position Sensor is located on the steering column under the dash just above the brake pedal. After talking to the same technician, the problem is symptomatic of a faulty steering position sensor.
I will post a new thread sometime this week after I make the repair to let everyone know if the problem is corrected.

Default Steering slip

My mechanic replaced the steering position sensor on my 1999 Tahoe and this solved the steering slippage problem.(About $130.00 parts & labor)

Steering Problem solved by replacing the EVO

I just fixed my steering problem on my '99 Tahoe. Here is what you need to do. :thumbsup:

http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/
GM PART # 26064468
PACK QTY: 1
GM LIST: $64.75
OUR PRICE: $36.91
DESCRIPTION: SENSOR
thank
1. Remove the bolt and nut (15mm deep socket) that connects the bottom of the steering column to the intermediate shaft that passes through the firewall. (You may need to turn your wheel to lock to access the nut. Might be wise to make an alignment mark on the shaft)

2. Slide the intermediate shaft towards the firewall. It may feel fairly stiff but it will go.

3. Once the shaft is out of the way, pry out the 3 little plastic tabs that hold the sensor in place and slide the sensor out of the housing.

4. Unplug the wire harness on the old sensor and remove the sensor

5. Plug in the new sensor BEFORE you pop it into place. Trust me on this one!

6. Pop the new sensor into place with the wires at the top. One sidenote here: I found no reference marks, slots, or keys anywhere so I am not sure if it matters how it is aligned. The wires need to be on the top or they won't reach.

7. Reconnect the steering shaft.

I opted to go with the dealer install route as well. I was in for another service anyway, and they were a little kinder to me on the labor cost. $95 installed was the additional charge for me.

I spoke with the tech, he said it was a no-brainer and I could have handled it.

Thanks for this thread, I wish I had found it 140,000 miles ago.

Default 98 tahoe steering slip

Just wanted to let everyone know that I replaced the steering position sensor almost a month ago in my 98 tahoe and the problem (steering slip) is gone! I mean not even any "minor play" in the steering. Cost for me was $105.00 for the sensor and 25-30 minutes to replace myself. If you decide to try the repair your self make sure the steering is locked in place and disconnect the battery. Best of luck!

This is an older string, but it was very usefull to me. I stumbled upon it while searching for something else, and it pointed out a problem I had not even realized was there. I had always taken it to be the nature of the aged beast, litttle did I know. Thank you Tahoe Forum....:rom2:
